In the news: Corruption in Indian Medicine

The British Medical Journal recently published an article, “Corruption ruins the doctor-patient relationship in India” by David Berger, a district medical officer in Australia who spent some time volunteering in a small charitable hospital in the Himalayas. Dr. Samiran Nundy, renowned gastroenterologist wrote a very good article for the Indian Express referring to this article.

The Times of India had a very good piece referring to both these articles here.

Incidentally, I had also talked about this in my post a few days back.
